When a storm wrecks their ship off the coast of a deserted island in the East Indies, William, Elizabeth, and their four sons must rely on each other for survival. Stranded like Robinson Crusoe, the family salvages what they can from the wrecked ship and uses their ingenuity to craft the rest of what they need from the natural resources around them. They are thousands of miles from home and surrounded by a fantastical variety of strange—and often dangerous—wildlife. What adventures await the family? Will they be able to make a new life for themselves on the island? This classic children's adventure was first published in 1812. Swiss author Johann David Wyss originally wrote it in German; this is an unabridged version of the 1879 English translation by William Henry Giles Kingston.
